Marvel Announces New ‘Avengers Inc.’ Series With Wasp At The Lead

The Avengers are assembling in a brand new way. Janet Van Dyne, the founding Avenger known as the Wasp, is forming a new team to hunt down criminals and rogues. Al Ewing has been announced as the writer while artist Leonard Kirk will handle the illustrations.

“60 years ago, Janet Van Dyne stood alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as they assembled for the very first time and named them the Avengers! Now, during the team’s milestone anniversary year, she’ll lead them into all-new territory in a brand-new AVENGERS title—AVENGERS INC,” Marvel said on their website.

“Together, Ewing and Kirk will introduce readers to a whole new style of Avenging. It kicks off with a deadly conspiracy rooted in the ghosts of the Avengers’ past that only founding Avenger Wasp can solve. But she won’t be alone as she finds a new partner in Victor Shade! This former alias of Vision mysteriously resurfaces just as Janet discovers a score of Super Villain murders. Will he guide Wasp to the truth or is his familiar guise hiding the very clues Janet needs to crack the case,” they continued.

The comic series will tie into the main Avengers title. While the line-up is unknown outside of Wasp, the cover features Vision in his Victor Shade form.

“Her name is Janet Van Dyne. She’s a hero. She’s a celebrity. She’s hunting a killer. His name is Victor Shade. He’s a villain. He’s an enigma. He just got killed. And together, they’re out to solve every mystery in the Marvel Universe…starting with their own,” they added.

Wasp was a founding member of the Avengers along with Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, and Ant-Man. She would be featured in several incarnations of the team and would have an on-again-off-again relationship with Hank Pym. At one point, she would take on the identity of Giant Woman.
